Short takes

As we await for the White Princess to emerge from her undisclosed location and address her adoring fans at the Christian Republican Convention ...

Lindsay Lohan writes a post sympathizing with Bristol Palin. And makes a plug for Obama. And gives a more sensible comment about teen sex than we're ever likely to hear from the Christian Right crew. (Lindsay Lohan Blogs About Bristol Palin Pregnancy: Focus On The Issues! Huffington Post 09/02/08)

Yes, it's true. Lindsay Lohan has more sensible things to say about current politics than Gloria Borger or most of the other clowns at CNN on a typical night of commentary.

Shorter MoDo, from her latest cry for help, aka, column (Life of Her Party New York Times 09/03/08): all of Sarah Palin's problems are the fault of Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton. Miracle of miracles, she didn't work in anything about Obama being a girlie-man!

Jay Rosen thinks the McCain campaign is going to use the White Princess to double-down on the "culture war". If he's right, we're going to be hearing a lot of whiny white folks the next couple of months. (The Palin Convention and the Culture War Option PressThink 09/03/08)

Lindsay's sensible comment notwithstanding, it's a legitimate issue for the Democrats and the press (if they happened to be so inclined) to ask how a hardline Christianist partisan like the White Princess reconciles her insistence on having her fringe Pentecostal values imposed by law on the rest of us with her seemingly tolerant hippie attitude toward her daughter's out-of-wedlock pregnancy. She's running to be the new Dick Cheney. We need to know lots more about her than we found out about Cheney in 2000.
